Tadalafil is a medication with an active ingredient of the same name that is used in the treatment of erectile dysfunction. It provides a long lasting effect of up to 36 hours. A single pill produces good results and allows the patient to achieve and sustain an erection.
How to Take Tadalafil
Two variations exist namely Tadalafil Daily and Tadalafil 36-Hour. Both employ the same active ingredient but function in a different fashion, depending on the needs of the patient.
This, as the name implies, is taken once per day at a dose of one tablet and preferably at the same time each day. It can be taken on either a full or empty stomach.
This variety is taken as and when needed, ideally 30 minutes to 1 hour before sexual intercourse. It can be taken on an empty stomach or with food but a havy meal could cause the it to take longer to produce results.
Tadalafil Daily comes as either a 2.5 mg dose or a 5 mg dose.
Most patients will take a 5 mg dose and adjust if necessary. If side effects are noted, drop to the 2.5 mg tablet.
Tadalafil 36-Hour also comes in 2 doses, either the 10 mg or 20 mg tablet. In this case, start with the lower dose and see if it performs as required. If not you can proceed to the higher dose. This will lessen the likelihood of any side effects. If the medication does not work as required, it is important to consult a doctor.
How long does it take to work?
The main benefit of Tadalafil as a treatment for erectile dysfunction is that it is fast acting. It can be effective after as little as 20 minutes as it is easily absorbed into the body. Bear in mind that a large meal could slow this effect down.
In the case of the daily version of Tadalafil, peak results might only be noted after 5 days as the active ingredient slowly builds up in your system. The benefit however is that once it is effective, it is an on-going solution.
How Long Is It Expected To Last?
The other great benefit of this medication s that the effect is long lasting. It has been proved to work effectively for up to 36 hours. The Tadalafil Daily will maintain the level of active ingredient in your body so that the desired results are available at all times.
